  • Cameron from Fairlee, VtOnce, when Josh was about 2, I was at the house, and Harry was talking to his producer, I think. Josh followed the phone wire to the wall, and pulled it out, promptly stopping the conversation. I remember general laughter. I am not sure what the reaction was on the other end of the line, but it did not matter. We were all happy on our end. Thanks Josh for reminding me!
  • Wesley from Sylmar, Coharry chapin is the man. i can listen to his songs all day every, day with out getting tired of them.
